Bio

Hi everyone!

I am currently working towards my BFA in Communication Design. I absolutely love our design community at citytech! Shoot me a message if you’d like to work together on a project!

We’re entering a time in which sense of community might start feeling like its falling apart so its up to us to keep it flowing by inspiring one another through our work!
